Jose Mauri Is Milan’s 4th Signing

Jose Mauri

Jose Mauri will add depth and options to Milan’s midfield

Jose Mauri’s arrival was made official after clearing red tape and a medical today. The 19 year old Argentina born central midfielder is Milan’s fourth official signing after Bertolacci, Bacca and Luiz Adriano. Mauri has played for the Italian under 17 side and holds an Italian passport. He has signed for four years.

Luiz Adriano arrived from Shakhtar Donetsk last week

The next transfer target is likely to be a central defender with Mexes still unsigned and not a certainty to remain. Lots of noise is being made about Roma’s Alessio Romagnoli who played at Sampdoria under Sinisa Mihajlovic on loan from the capital. The 20 year remains a possibility but other targets should be pursued because Rodrigo Ely, Alex, Cristian Zaccardo and Cristian Zapata (plus Paletta! thanks to commenter greggraffinci) are the only recognized central defenders on the roster as of today.

      You have forgotten Paletta is still on the roster. Adding Romagnoli would round out the roster for sure.

        Still a weakness in my opinion but a big omission, thank you for pointing it out.
